I wrote to you at the end of May to help me to find a suitable job. Today, I am writing to thank you for helping me to find the right job and it’s something I enjoy very much.

Your Loving Child.

Your Ever-Grateful Child.

6. Dearest Mother Mary,

I was facing some difficulties in my workplace over the past year and felt anxious constantly. It was also taking a toll on my mental health and personal relationships. With your grace and intercession, I managed to secure a new job which has a better working environment and will be starting on Monday. 

Your Son.

7. Dearest Mother,

I want to thank you for helping my husband. I pleaded for your help and intercession when he underwent an open-heart surgery. It was a success. Your love for my family has been great, we are really blessed.

Your Loving Daughter.

8. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for your intercession. I am currently here in the USA but I am still your follower. I am sorry that I am not regularly attending Novena online. I passed my nursing exam here and I believe that it’s through your intercession and prayers that I am able to make it.

Your Grateful Daughter.

9. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for your powerful intercession and guiding my child in her ‘O’ Level Chinese. She was healthy throughout that period and she did very well for the exam. We are very thankful for all the protection and blessings you have given to us.

Your Loving Child.

10. Dear Mother Mary,

I am 65 years old today. Words cannot express my heartfelt thanks to you Mother for bringing me here today in peace and enjoying my retirement surrounded by loving and thoughtful family and friends. Mother, you have always been there for me through all the storms, worries and troubles in my life and you have always extended your mantle of protection and love over me. As I enter this phase of my life, help me to truly devote my life, my energies and my focus in love and service of God and neighbour and to be able to discern all that God’s wills for me.

Your Grateful Child.

1. My dearest Mother Mary,

You are so amazing and I cannot thank you and Jesus enough for answering my petition instantly. Yesterday, I sent a petition seeking your help for a friend who was infected with Covid-19 and was in a critical state due to low oxygen levels. Earlier today, his wife informed me that he is now out of the critical stage and is recovering well. Thank you so much, Mother, for your intercession. Thank you, Jesus, for your mercy towards my friend. Please continue to help all those infected with this terrible illness and help them to recover. Thank you once again, Mother. You have never failed to answer my prayer. I love you and Jesus.

Your Ever-Grateful child.

2. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for helping me to get over my depression following the passing of my mother. After many years, I finally feel the openness to love again in my heart. I am always being comforted whenever I visit your shrine. I know that the healing was certainly due to your gracious intercession and I thank you for drawing us close to your Son, Jesus.

Your Grateful Daughter.

3. Dearest Mother,

After five long years and a lot of hard work, my son has finally graduated. Due to our financial situation, my son had to work while studying, and he went through a lot of stress juggling a demanding job and his academics. It was at that time, Mother, when I asked you to intercede for him, to give him strength and patience to go through the difficult period in his life. Thank you for your guidance and blessings. All this was only possible because of your intercession, dear Mother. Thank you again, Mother, for looking after my family.

Your Grateful Catholic Daughter.

4. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I wrote a petition several months back asking for your intercession to help us find a buyer for our house. A short while after I sent in the letter, we found a buyer and the house was sold. If not for your intercession, it wouldn’t have been possible for us to sell our house in such a short period of time. This is surely the work of God. From the bottom of our heart, we thank you for your constant intercession and unfailing help.

Your Faithful Child.

5. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for guiding me every day. I was at the lowest point in my personal and professional life, and I felt helpless and completely lost. I turned to you for help, Mother, and through your intercession and through God’s grace, I regained strength, hope, and direction in my life, especially at a time when I thought I had lost everything. Thank you once again, Mother.

Your Ever-Grateful Son.

6. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you very much for your powerful intercession in helping us avert a lawsuit. Being law-abiding people, we’ve never encountered such a situation which caused us so much distress, compounded by the pandemic, and even a Quarantine Order to boot. Our family was in a dark place, with agonising days and sleepless nights, but you were always with us. It was through your intercession and God’s blessing, that we came to realise, through our sympathetic and experienced lawyers, that there weren’t any grounds for a case. These were just unscrupulous people who tried exacting money from us, poor retirees, by simply sending a threatening lawyer’s letter. Thank you, Mother Mary and our Lord Jesus, for always taking care for us. With eternal love and thanks.

Your Grateful Children.

7. Dearest Mother,

In April this year, my mum was diagnosed with advanced stage cancer. After a biopsy and major surgery, we were told she had an aggressive cancer that had spread, and my mum had to undergo chemotherapy. Each chemo session entailed a lot of suffering for my mother. Losing all her hair was one thing. She had so much anxiety and fear, and was trembling whenever she went for her chemo sessions. Through it all, we kept turning to you, Mother, each time to intercede for her. Just last Friday, we were informed that her cancer is now in remission. Thank you, my dearest Mother for your help and powerful intercession. Please continue to pray for my mother’s continued healing.

Your Loving Daughter.

8. Dearest Mother,

I am writing this letter to thank you for your protection. Several months back, I fell twice. The first time was when I was on the escalator. Without paying much attention, I stepped onto the ascending escalator instead of the descending one. I was thrown back and as I squatted down without anything to grip, I fell on my back with the escalator pushing me up. Thankfully, I managed to get on my feet and was unhurt. My second fall happened when I missed one step when coming down a flight of stairs. Thankfully, I managed to get up with no broken bones except some slight pain. My heels were bruised but that was minor and the wounds were already healed. I would not have survived those two falls if not for your constant intercession for God’s protection and mercy. Thank you, Mother and please continue to pray for me.

Your Grateful Daughter.

9. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Mmy daughter has finally given birth to a healthy baby, and we are very thankful that both mother and child are safe and sound. Thank you for your intercession, dear Mother, and thank you Lord for this gift of new life. We are very grateful.

Your Loving Child.

10. Dear Mother Mary,

I am writing this letter to thank you for your prayers and intercession, without which my partner and I would have broken up. May we both continue to grow and learn from this incident. Through your intercession, God has been guiding us and protecting us from temptation. Thank you again, dear Mother. Please continue to intercede for our relationship.

Your Loving Children.

1. Dearest Mother Mary,

Before my triple heart bypass surgery on 27 July, I wrote to you to intercede to the Lord for a successful operation. I am eternally gratefully, Blessed Mother, for your assistance and prayers. The surgery was a success. I am now recuperating at home and will need a few more weeks to recover completely and resume my normal activities. Thank you, Mother, for all that you have done for me and in imploring your Son, to come to my aid.

Your Catholic Son.

2. Dear Mother,

On 23 June 2021 my sister went to remove a growth on the inner corner of her right eye which the doctor diagnosed as 60% cancerous. Thankfully it was benign. Thank you, Mother Mary, and our Lord, Jesus Christ, for your healing. I also thank you that my husband’s colonoscopy result was good and clear without any polyps. My daughter did a scan for her thyroid and it was reported that 2 small abnormal lymph nodes were seen but according to the doctor, she should not be overly concerned. Thank you for all the blessings that you have showered upon my family.

Your daughter.

3. Dearest Mother,

This letter is a first for me because I have never written in to ask for your intercession. Today I come to you to both thank you and also with a petition. I moved to USA a long time ago. My parents always reminded me that wherever you are in the world, you must look for a church as a priority. I did and in that parish, I found one of the most wonderful parish priests I have had the honour of knowing. His sermons have brought smiles to my face, brought me enlightenment and most importantly, deepened my faith and understanding in our Lord. Mother, I want to thank you for always knowing what I need and for interceding for me and asking our Lord to send the people I need in my life. The priest has survived triple bypass surgeries and cancer and is now in his twilight years yet he is still so active in our community and says Mass whenever he has the opportunity to do so. However now, he needs you. His cancer has relapsed. He is lifting his sufferings up to you and continues to pray for those who ask him to pray for them. Even in his pain, he manages to emulate your Son. Mother, I ask you to intercede for our priest. Regardless of what our Lord’s plan for him is, I want to thank you and our Lord for making him such a great part in my life.

Your Loving Daughter.

4. Dearest Mother Mary, 

For the past few years I have been praying to you, asking you to help my son to find a life partner. Last year, he met a friend and last week, he had his marriage solemnised at the Registrar of Marriage. I am very grateful for you to have my prayers answered.

Your Daughter.

5. Dear Mother Mary,

For the past one and half years of unemployment, I have been constantly asking for your help to intercede for me to your Son, Jesus, for a suitable job. I want to give thanks for my prayers are answered. Thank you for not giving up on me and my family.

Your Loving Daughter.

6. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for interceding for my daughter. She has given birth to a healthy baby girl. It was through you that everything went well.

Your Grateful Daughter.

7. Dear Mother,

Thank you for taking care of my sister-in-law. She was supposed to board a flight on 2 August but it was cancelled. As she waited at the airport for the next flight 2 hours later, she collapsed at the airport with severe hypoglycemia. As she was in the airport, she was given immediate medical attention and recovered in few days. Dear Mother, thank you for protecting over her. I believe it was your Son’s Divine intervention that cancelled the flight.

Your Daughter.

8. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for looking after my family and me. This morning without caution and thinking I dragged a marble top table in order to put out the laundry to dry. The whole table with the marble top came tumbling down and missed my left foot by inches. It would most probably have crushed my left foot and I would had to be hospitalised for sure. I definitely knew that Jesus and you were looking after me. Thank you so much.

Your Loving Grateful Child.

9. Dear Mother Mary,

I had lost hope as no matter how much I nagged, my daughter was not motivated to work towards her “O” levels. I came to you for help as I was sad and disappointed. You have helped and blessed her to be accepted in the DSA selection. This takes the pressure off. I am so thankful for your blessings on my daughter. Thank you, Mother, for always being there for us.

Your Daughter.

10. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

I would like to thank you for interceding with your Divine Son, Jesus, to heal my daughter of her mental health stress. She is now recovering at home after 4 months in hospital. I would like to thank God for His blessings, mercy and grace for her.

Your Grateful Catholic Son.

1. Dearest Blessed Mother Mary,

My heartfelt thanks to you for the many years of blessings & maternal protection over me. No earthly mother could do what you have done for me. You quietly & gently guided me throughout my life & looking up to your gentle face always gives me much consolation in time of my desolation. Thank you, dearest Mother for loving me.

Your ever-grateful daughter.

2. Dear Mother,

Thank you for your intercession. I am 6 weeks into my new job and it is in a very interesting industry and I have good-hearted people for my colleagues. Please guide me to do my best while maintaining my health and family bonds. I remember my anxieties when no job offers came after 5 months of searching. Looking back, I now see that the unemployment was a time of recovery and a humbling lesson to trust our Lord. Thank you for your constant prayers and blessings.

Your daughter.

3. Dearest Mother,

This letter is long overdue. I want to thank you for answering our prayers for our new born baby grandson who had to go through a brain surgery after birth and has recovered well. We know it is through your intercession that this miracle happened. Jesus your Son, has granted all our prayers for this baby. We continue to pray for your intercession for the baby to grow normally. Keep him safe.

Your loving children.

4. Dearest Mother Mary, 

Although I was not born with a silver spoon, my dad and mum gave me the best that any parent could give to their child, and that is, unconditional love. For that, I will be forever grateful to them.  8 Aug 2021 is the one-year anniversary of my father’s passing. There’s not a single day that I would wake up in the morning, hoping that dad being gone is just a dream and I would still see him and hear his voice again. But, I know that he is in good hands now. Looking back, I can see that everything happens for a reason and God works in mysterious ways. I just want to thank you for all the blessings that you have given us throughout the years. Thank you, Mother Mary

5. Dear Mother Mary,

A week ago, I came to you to ask for your intercession for a close family friend whose x-ray result showed a 6-cm mass in his lungs. From the PET and CT scans, they showed that the cancer has spread to the other lung and also the lymph nodes. The prognosis was bad. His daughter who is not Catholic prayed to you and to your Son Jesus for healing of her dad. Over the weekend, her parents accepted Jesus. His daughter enquired about the RCIA and will be starting her journey at the Cathedral. To top it off, the biopsy results that just came back showed that the cancer cells are not the aggressive sort. The doctor is now more confident about the outlook. On behalf of the family, I want to say a big thank you to you and your Son for these blessings. With confidence, we know that all these are possible through your intercession and the grace of your Son Jesus.

6. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for interceding for my vaccination in Singapore as a foreigner as well as for the vaccination of my beloved parents back home. We have been separated due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions since the beginning of the pandemic. Both myself and my aging parents have been vaccinated with no serious side effects and remain healthy and safe although we are miles apart. Mother, I would like to also thank you for your constant intercession for my parents’ medical tests to be completed with reassuring results so that they can finally travel to our summer home and spend a restful time following several months of isolation. Thank you, our Heavenly Mother, for keeping us healthy and protected until we re-unite again safely and joyfully in God’s time. With deep gratitude and genuine love.

Your Christian daughter.

1. Dearest Mother,

A month ago, I had to rush to the A&E with severe pain around my left kidney area. I was referred to a specialist who ordered a CT scan of my two kidneys. I was worried the scan might show something more sinister, for example cancer or a large stone that would require surgery. I thus prayed to you for your intercession for a normal scan. The results are now out, and all is good. This is a big relief and I thank you Mother from the bottom of my heart and your Son, Jesus.

2. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for helping me get through a difficult period of depression and helping me recover my mental health more than once. First, when my mother passed away and second, when my boyfriend left me. Both times were very difficult for me, but I turned to you, and you brought me immense comfort. Thank you for bringing me closer to Jesus.

Your Grateful Daughter.

3. Dear Mother Mary,

Thank you for the blessings that I have received today, as you have always blessed me and my family. Thank you also for the Hope, Work, food, shelter, clothes, and health that were offered to us. Help me to realise that every day I am blessed by your unlimited grace and love and I love you always.

Your Unworthy Child.

4. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

My daily prayers to you and our Lord Jesus have always been peacefully answered without any hiccups. I am so grateful our prayers have always answered. Thank you for your intercession and to Our Lord for granting our petitions.

Your Loving Son.

5. Dearest loving Mother,

The devastating loss of my niece earlier this year plunged our world into darkness. Thank you with all my heart for taking us on this healing journey. Through the kind souls you sent us, we saw the love and mercy of Jesus and yourself. Despite our pain and grief, we found hope and light in the world through your guidance. Thank you for bringing us closer to your son Jesus and for praying for us, and we are making progress in our healing. I am now taking the RCIA with my husband to learn more about the faith. Pease continue to guide and help us.

Your Non-Catholic Daughter.

6. Dear Mother Mary,

A few months ago, I suffered my first panic attack. It was the deepest darkest moment of my life. It was an accumulation of everything that I have been shouldering as a child, a mum, a wife and an employee. I was faced with a serious medical issue, and I turned to you for your intercession. Through your prayers, it was indeed a miracle that the MRI which I took earlier which indicated through the ultrasound that I had a serious medical issue, now showed that it was totally gone. It was an error, according to the medical staff. But I know that it was a miracle. Thank you, mother, once again for your timely intercession to your Son, Jesus.

Your Loving Daughter.

7. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I would like to offer my sincere and grateful thanks to you for being successful in my recent application due to a global restructuring exercise in my current organisation. Please continue to watch over me as I embark on this new role. I was not sure whether I could get the job, but I humbly asked for your intercession to your son Jesus, that my application would be successful and of course it was. Continue to guide me in my new job and responsibilities. Thank you very much.

Your Catholic Daughter.

8. Dearest Mother Mary,

Thank you for your generous intercession for my daughter. She has been offered a job that she was hoping to get. Although it is a traineeship position only for 6 months. I know with your intercession she will be offered a permanent position there after her 6 months are up. Thank you once again.

Your Grateful Daughter.
